Quality Control for Steel Wire and Metal Products
Pronto’s quality control process is part of our quality assurance system. Our quality control engineers have developed systems to ensure that our steel wire and metal products meet or exceed customer specifications. Our quality control system starts with the raw materials that we purchase and continues throughout our entire manufacturing process. Every step requires different quality control checkpoints and procedures to ensure that we are manufacturing quality metal products.
Develop QC checkpoints for each step of the manufacturing process.
Train our QC inpsectors on what to look for and how to test to ensure quality metal fabrication at each step.
Carry out the execution of the inspections. Document and address corrective actions.
Quality Control Process
Our quality control process is focused on Product Quality, one of our three pillars of quality. The other two, People Quality and Process Quality, fall under the domain of our quality assurance engineers. Quality wire products, and quality metal fabrication in general, require a focus on raw materials, sub assemblies, and fixtures.
We vet our vendors and then test raw material deliveries to ensure that we are starting the process with quality raw materials.
Sub assemblies are the building blocks for quality metal products. We review each steel wire form or metal part to ensure compliance.
Our QC engineers are involved in designing our fixtures to make sure that critical dimensions are accounted for.
Design Process Methods
Quality metal fabrication is built on our quality control systems. Some aspects of our system, highlighted below, are adapted to specific wire products or metal parts and some are more general in nature. In addition, they are modified based on customer requirements. Quality metal products is the result. Contact us to learn more!
